Seriously… where is Kap??
On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated released the cover of its latest issue (above) which analyzes the controversial debate of whether to stand or to kneel.
Using red, white, and blue colors, the “A Nation Divided, Sports United” publication features LeBron James, Stephen Curry, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell linking arms.
Almost immediately, Twitter users criticized the magazine for not including Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 began the act of kneeling during The Star-Spangled Banner in response to police brutality and racial inequalities.
See the best reactions (below):

The Sports Illustrated “protest” cover includes a man who gave a $1,000,000 to Trump but not Colin Kaepernick who lost his career over it. pic.twitter.com/TyQ6eD4cuP

The one guy that started it is the one that has no job now. Everyone else is just a copy cat.

This cover is a complete joke. How dare you include Goodell and not Kap? I truly hope no one buys this.

So I guess we’re all just pretending Colin Kaepernick doesn’t exist? How y’all leave out the man that started it?
